Women who claim to be victims of sexual abuse at the hands of deceased child molester Jeffrey Epstein are planning to sue his estate under a new law that goes into effect this month.
Lawyers for the women said they want to sue the estate of the multi-millionaire financier under the “Child Victims Act” after the disgraced perv apparently hanged himself in a federal lockup in Lower Manhattan.
“We intend to promptly file those civil claims” having held off suing while federal prosecutors pursued sex trafficking charges against Epstein, Los Angeles attorney Lisa Bloom, who represents two women, told Reuters.
The “Child Victims Act” takes effect on Aug. 14 in New York and gives people a year to sue over allegations of sexual abuse, regardless of when the alleged acts occurred.

Epstein, 66, died on Saturday in an apparent suicide in his cell at the Manhattan Correctional Center.
Bloom said she hopes estate monies will not be distributed until the claims are litigated.
“If we find out the estate is selling off things, dissipating assets, we will go in for a court order,” Bloom said.
